However and wherever you live, the effects of the economic downturn have been pervasive, leaving few of us unscathed. They’re even affecting our friendships!


With the cost of entertainment, transportation and meals skyrocketing, there’s a natural tendency to hunker down, cocoon at home, and reduce spending. "In times like this, everyone is looking for ways to save," says Jo Gartin, a celebrity party planner and author of Jo Gartin’s Weddings. "For many, that means bringing entertaining inside the home."

    I’ve noticed that more women I talk to will say things like: I mostly have male friends. I don’t hang out with girls that much. I’ve never gotten along with women.

    I always thought that was such as an odd thing to say considering, well, they are women, and my experiences have been the opposite – ie, thanks to my female friendships i’ve managed to ride many storms. Is this a result of society influences? Are they accepting the stereotype of women being catty etc? Or is this really their personality. Have they not found good female friends?

    I almost feel sorry for women that say these types of comments 🙁 Any thoughts?
